In 2018, NGSF awarded nearly $55,000 in grants and $50,000 in endowment funding.
Since 2001, more than $700,000 has been awarded in grants that benefit our students and classrooms directly. Our grants support all academic disciplines - from providing new tools for science instruction and reading to making new investments in technology - any idea that provides support for student success is welcome.
Who is eligible to apply?
Any educator, parent, or community member within the North Gwinnett cluster of schools. All applications must be approved by respective local school principals.
What can be applied for?
Educational programs and equipment that directly benefit classroom instruction within any of the North Gwinnett cluster schools.
Where do the funds come from?
Individual and corporate contributions to the NGSF, as well as proceeds from the Big T'Do event and online auction.
How are funds dispersed?
Annually, the NGSF Board of Trustees will allocate at least 50% of the Big T'Do event proceeds and donations for grants. The remaining income is used for other expenses or is deposited into an endowment fund. The NGSF Allocations Committee is tasked with determining how the funds will be distributed according to a rubric that includes need, number of students affected, and greatest benefit to the classroom or school.
What is the timeline?
Grant applications and timeline for 2019 are being finalized. Grants are typically awarded each November following the Big T'Do event.
